The car doesn’t interest them though, it doesn't meet their requirements. It's a nice old colonial house though. Mike limps around, says he lived there 11 years and is going to have to sell it. He takes him to the safe where the combo is right 3 times to 73. John opens it and asks, “it won't blow up in my face will it?” There is a bunch of money, some rocks, not much. Mike calls Jose to make a deal. John says he has to make a decision to take his kids to a foster home and is it the best things for the kids?

She's a tiny, skinny skank who denies making threats. He says the first person they'll look for is her if they have a problem with him. He says they are tired of her. She says she's sick of them. He says he's never talked to her before, but arrested her when she was driving drunk doing 75mph down the road. She doesn't remember it because she was drunk.

The cop says he'll be out there 5 days a week for the next 7 years so he'll take care of it. Two female witnesses saw her too, they say she's dangerous and there are kids around. They find the woman walking down the road in a red bathing suit and arrest her for attempted arson. She mouths off and says she'll talk to the judge. They say to also charge her with reckless endangerment and trespassing to keep her in jail longer. She curses them out. He asks if she knows how serious this is. She says she isn't going to start fires and she didn't go over there. She's drunk again and they says that's the problem. The man wants to know how long she'll stay in jail, he has to think of his daughters. He wonders if she'll get her drug friends to come after him. The...

He asks why do they think they were chasing him. (Neighborhood Dispute) Dennis says his kids saw a boy named Mike shooting a BB gun last week and then today the window on his truck was shot out. Chris goes over there and the dad says no one saw him do it. Mike says he has a BB gun and shoots it in the backyard, not at his house. He might've shot a tree, it bounced off and broke his window. Dad offered to pay for it and went to talk to him. The wife says he refused to pay for it and it's not true, that's why the police are here. He tried to plead with Dennis to pay for it and he declined. It's the wife. Chris says Mike admitted breaking it and they should pay. He says he tried.

Then they find another guy and take James outside to search him. He gets unauthorized use of a vehicle, two counts of auto theft and two counts against Stanley. He says they followed him around a couple days, so why did they allow him to continue, if he was breaking the law? So they could get him with bigger crimes.

Officers tried to serve a warrant to 63 year-old Kenneth Lynn and he shot at police twice through the door, but missed them. (Tactical Team Briefing) Deputy Chief Doug Smith says they asked Ken to come out to talk to him for neighborhood problems – smell and trash. They are trying to make contact with him and find out from neighbors if anyone else lives there since he could have hostages. The teams face is covered, they are inside perimeter, they can use gas on him if necessary. If he has a long rifle he can get them. They have to stay back and use high risk entry tactics. The team has to survey the house, will be close enough where he could hit them with a rock. (Negotiation Team Command Post) Neighbors stated he suffered a head trauma injury in WWII, but has never been to the hospital for mental illness, he has very poor eyesight, cataracts, heavy smoker, emphysema, bronchitis, hasn’t drank for 13 years, but if he’s drinking again he’ll be very hostile and, negative. He just was in detox 2 weeks ago – a good sign he’s been drinking again. His personal info is on the board “DOB 8/20/27 or 29, divorced, ex-wife Mildred (lives with Gail) alcoholic who gets hostile when he drinks, has 4 children.” One cop knows him, didn’t know he was a problem. Sgt. Charles Resch says he’s a loner, has 3 or 4 old cars, his mom died 8 years ago, he’s kind of weird. The cop who was shot at says it went right between them, splinters of the door hit him. Officer Rick Stanek says he has a 300 rifle, 3-4 shotguns with ammo, a German Luger, 38 & 45 revolver and a 25 automatic according to his son. Two weeks ago he called in for a report and they took him to detox instead of taking a report so he’s mad at the cops. They get a call of an attic. Cops back up with blast shield, they run behind a car, stay low. They hide behind a car, want to get close to shoot gas and others wait next door at 4800. They want to negotiate, get him on the phone, if he won’t answer they’ll throw in a phone. Anything to talk him out, gas is the last chance, no turning back then. Sgt. Robert Gretton explains about the phone they are throwing in that will go back to the team directly to negotiate with them. The team goes up heavily armed with a shield, one smashes the window with a crowbar and the next tosses the phone in a bag. They call at 4:44 PM that it is in. They beep it from the station and Larry calls for him to pick up. Outside they call in to pick up the phone. Larry wants to help, tells him open it up and pick it up. He picks up. He doesn’t blame him, they are both sick of listening to the beeper, what’s going on? He can hear him. Then he hangs up. (6:25 PM) He said he’s sick of the beeping and cut the line. Officer Dave Mattson is outside in camo gear. They want cold beers, fresh women and a pizza. Larry calls again. Sgt. John Hennessy says to be very authoritative, this is what they want him to do, no more playing around, for his own good. (8:08 PM) Larry tells him he has to talk to him. Ken says he had to tend to his dog’s foot and put peroxide on it. What’s all the yelling about? They want to talk to him. He says they like to hear themselves talk it’s so loud. Larry says it’s been an hour and half since he talked to him. People are going to react to him. What is it going to take to get him out? He wants Cordell and Ruben Johnson. He says Cordell is there. He says he’s not. That’s what they tell him, he can’t come on though. He won’t trust a cop, it’s like trusting Dillinger. Larry says if he puts Cordell on will he come out. He might. If he does something for Ken he has to so something for him. The team outside creeps around to get drinks and come back, knees are killing them and they are thirsty. They cut his power. He doesn’t give a crap, doesn’t need it. He needs him to come out, he has people lined up. Are you afraid of...

Officer Wes Edstrom supervises as he gets out of the car at gunpoint, cuffs and searches a guy. Mike is told to keep the back door open while searching them and put their feet back and head on the trunk to keep them off balance. When you go down to search don't go on your knees or they can kick you. It's looks good. (Practical Exercises Lab) Sgt. Dave Martenz draws on a board about the training, they can film them from all angles. They can see if they have it or not, how they treat people, if they have a bad attitude. He's not looking to scare them or drum them out, he wants it to be a positive experience. They are going to a bar scenario. The actors are real cops using lines they've all heard in the bars. Dave says he's heard it over 12 years while he watching, it's real interesting. The bartender says he's having trouble with drunk customers and wants them out. They try to talk to them and say why do they have to leave. It's their bar, they want them out. One woman fights and they throw them out. Then they find a gun on one guy and he claims he has a permit and wants to show it. He tries to get him to put the gun down as his partner holds him at gunpoint. They hold him back and he fights because he doesn't like to be restrained. He says he can walk out on his own. They say OK and the guy runs out. He comes back in with a gun and says for the cops to let her go or they'll get shot. They both run out. That's two in a row they screwed up. Dave says if they can't win don't go forward.

Greg is driving him on his first day. Tom says she's all yours. They drive around looking for the guy and finally spot him. Mike holds him at gunpoint, Greg searches him and says he's sweating like a racehorse. The suspect asks what that means. He's cuffed and says he matches the description of a shooter. Where was he? He was at his girlfriend’s, cousin’s house. He turned away because he's scared out the police, not going to lie. His cousin lives right there at 206. They go back to the cordoned off scene to ID him. Officer Greg Hirsch says the hat is a Wrigley field diamond which looks like an A (9:10 PM) The ambulance is working on the victim with two gun shots in him. A witness with long dreadlocks says he saw him when he was sitting in front of his house and ID's him. It was a shooting at a crack house. The suspect was chasing the victim in his car, he hit an innocent car, crashed into a tree and the guy jumped out and shot him three times. He has a bunch of rock on him, might be a drug deal gone bad.

Minneapolis, MN 3 - Women Cops Sep 30, 1990 (8:13 PM Domestic Disturbance) Third Precinct - Officer Janee Harteau says the main reason she became a cop because it was challenging, not a controlled environment, you deal with all kinds of people from all races and all levels of poverty from rich to poor. It's different, but everyone's the same. It's easier to talk to people when you are a female. They were brought up to talk first, physical next. Officer Holly Keegal has a blonde short puffy mullet and says originally was going to be a teacher, but took some law courses and really enjoyed it. She took more classes and decided to pursue law. They go into a backyard and there is a dirty white guy with a heavily stained shirt sitting there. He says he lives there, looks drunk and has trouble standing up They lead him around front to search him, find nothing, put him in the car and he flips out. He curses at them and says he didn't break any law and won't fully get in. The woman in the house says he's her brother. He's an alcoholic, one of the nicest guys when sober, but when drinking you stay away from him. They go back to him and he says "take it easy, I don't care who you are, what are you trying to do, why don't you stop?" They want him out so they can cuff him. He struggles, goes down, his shirt comes up and he tries to roll away when they go to cuff him. Holly puts her knee on his head. He curses them and says something about them failing training. Janee says it doesn't matter that they are women, they aren't messing around. They aren't getting away with it. On their off time we see Janee playing the drums with black gloves while Holly plays the keyboards in the garage. Holly took piano lessons for a little while, but gave it up to play sports. She can't read music, but plays by ear. She wears short pink shorts and a Guess top. Janee sings, she was in a band, so they got together and thinks they can really do good some day if they pursue it. It's a great stress reliever away from the job. (10:03 PM Theft in Progress) A young black kid was seen running. They pull up and Holly runs out and catches him. She stands on him and cuffs him. He was on a motorcycle and she brings him to the backup unit and puts him in the car. She goes back to the Vespa scooter. Sgt. Tom O'Rourke arrives as their car is making all kinds of noise. Holly explains the screw is off on the air conditioner. There were four of them, but they only caught him. He's a juvenile and will be booked for theft. A full jail is a happy jail. (3:21 AM) 911 Call Residential Robbery - Officer Pam Elius says it's quite a job, not anyone can do it, no other job is like it. She couldn't do anything else and wouldn't want to do anything else. Where else could you work 8 hours a day and have fun? A black man fled a house he robbed with a gun. They go to the house and the victim is an old woman who is terrified. She was sleeping and the guy came into her room and covered her mouth, she's worried her mouth is swollen. Officer Charles Teneyck writes her story down. Pam gets her water. Her mouth is fat and she tastes blood. He went through her purse, took her keys, told her he needs money because his kids were hungry. She went to get her purse and wouldn't turn the light on, but was afraid he would attack her. He came in the back window, but she only had $1 in there. She didn't hear him, he left out the back door and gave her the keys back. Pam checks the window and the screen is cut. She hopes with the info she gave them and the jewelry he stole they can track down the piece of scum. (4:47 AM Vehicle Fire) They go to a yellow van that is burning up as fire and black smoke are pouring out of it. They find a guy nearby and check him out. She moves the car away in case it blows up. She gets out to talk about blocking traffic and there is an explosion. The Fire Department arrives. Pam hopes there was no one inside, she called but got no answer. The guy says he and his girlfriend live in the van and are homeless, she lit a...

Minneapolis, MN 4 - On the Home Front Oct 7, 1990 (5:26 PM Sexual Assault Call) Third Precinct - A call comes in from a woman who says her 11 year-old daughter has been raped, it just happened and the suspect has left the scene. Officer Dan McShane and Officer Paul Cottingham go up to the house and say her they don’t know where it happened, have no suspect info and will take it as they get it. They walk up to the dirty house and the TV is blaring. Macy the girl says cousin Randy was going to take her to McDonald's and Freddy would pay for it. Freddy told her they would go around the corner, he’s someone they know and trust, a friend of her aunt and he's 35-40. He told them to get in the car so she got in the back and he told her to come up front. They went to McDonald's ordered food and he didn't pay for it. He told her to come in his car and sit up there, she said no, she was going to go to McDonald's and he said no, but they went anyway. He wanted to go to the movies, she said they couldn’t do that and he started the car, she wanted to go home, he parked and asked her to show him something. She says she didn't have anything. Then he said he would show her something. She said no. Did she know what he was talking about? Yeah, his private parts. He started driving, almost crashed and she yelled. He put his hand on her leg and she started crying. He said you are scared huh? Macy and her mom then cry. It will be molestation and they will turn over to child welfare. They will get back to her, they take it very serious. Avoid contact with Freddy, they'll get back to them, it could be something he does often. She did the right thing by telling her mom, she was very brave, a lot of people don’t tell, otherwise it could go on. Stay away from him, it's a bad scene. (Roll Call) Fifth Precinct - Officer Don Bautista says they had an unusual burglary last night, all he did was go through the woman's underwear, sexual in nature. She is a counselor from St. Mary's chemical dependencies. He was discharged on Monday, has called and left her a message on her machine. He works at a Pizzeria, is a 20 year old white male, they'll talk to him tonight and see what his story is. All he did was take her underwear out and did what those type of people do. (7:45 PM Burglary Investigation) They go to Ribizza looking for Ben, he isn't there, but will be back in 15 minutes. He’s wearing a white t-shirt and dark shorts. They get him when he pulls up and detain him. He's curious as to what is going on. There was a burglary on 27th & Xerxes last night while he was working to someone he's familiar with. He says Tracy is the only one she knows living there. He has surprised her when she was sunbathing at home and on the beach. He says he said hello to her at the beach and she was expecting him at the house. He's been in her house before with her, with her permission. It's just an interview, so he's let go. He goes to see Tracy. She says she didn't call Ben and didn't make a date with him. He tells her what Ben said that she made advances towards him. He knows this is false. There is no relationship between them. She says "oh, god" about her dating him, he must have quite a record. He says he has no record and checked around the world. She asks if he thinks Ben will do something. He can't guarantee that. When she comes home, open the door, don't go in, wait, listen. Don't go anywhere alone, bring people with you. The guy is a wacko, you've read the papers. They have probable cause to arrest him and goes back to Ribizza to look for him. He goes in and finds him in the back. He is searched, cuffed, taken downtown and mirandized. (7:17 PM Domestic Violence Call) Third Precinct - Officer John Billington says it seems whenever you get alcohol and drugs in the picture it gets worse. Lots more domestics lately, whenever force is used on people living together they have to make an arrest. Officer Steve Setzer is his partner. They get a call from a woman saying her husband is smoking crack in the house and she...

Minneapolis, MN 5 Oct 14, 1990 (2:15 PM Riot Control Briefing) Deputy Chief Doug Smith says the Skinheads, Lawyers Guild and Woman against Military Madness will be in the demonstration at 3:30 PM by the federal building. Expect 300-500 people. They don't have a parade permit, won't disclose it so they’ll go in private to discourage and provoke the police. They will provoke by spray painting things. If cops move in they will throw rocks at them. They will ID the leaders and may wait until the end before they arrest people. A female cop goes undercover as a punk goth chick in a black wig with black lipstick. The cops get all their riot gear ready. A speaker says they have no permit, but will march anyway. A hippy leader approaches police who will assist them in any way possible. They will give a police escort, but keep the traffic blockage to a minimum and no vandalism. The guy says they don't want any trouble, want to march, traffic support is OK. Their chant is "We're going to beat back the Bush attack" and "1234 we don't want their bloody war." They put up posters and burn a dummy. Then things get out of hand and one person is arrested. They tell the leader they have painted the building twice, vandalized, enough is enough, time to move along. A couple fights and are arrested. The goal was to wait and surgically remove the leaders. A guy threw paint bombs and two people jumped them, all are arrested. (5:05 PM Debriefing) The leader bit an IDS guard and went to jail. The plain clothes people ID'd him, a job well done. (911 Call Street Fight) Third District – It’s at 3309 Clinton Ave, one male down, one might have a gun and a bunch of people have sticks and bats. They pull up and stop three guys, one has a bar. Officer Steve Setzer is there. A black guy has a huge stick in his pocket. He says a guy broke out his car window and called them niggers. Officer John Billington goes to the victim. He's a white guy with a bunch of cuts and a bloody nose he covers. He says they ran through his yard, didn't see them, but knows their car. Three black guys tried to break into his garage, he confronted them, they beat him and took off. His car also has windows broken out. One of the crooks says he punched him in the face and pulled a knife on them and they took off. He says there were two of them and stabbed their windows. One guy keeps yelling and John tells them to speak English, he's listening, stop the garbage. The guy in a Batman shirt gets loud and says the guy accused him of going through his yard. They ran and thought they caught him. The victim says they came through his yard and they beat him up. The criminals says they left their house, went to their car, the guy yelled at them, smashed their car and they chased him, but didn't catch them. No one knows what happened, both are lying and they can't tell who is telling the truth. They are going to write them up and cut them loose. What about their car? That's what insurance is for. Fourth Precinct Roll Call - Sgt. Frank Dallman reads a report about a young black thief who cuts in windows and steals things, tools and more. Officer Bill Thornberg has been there 15 years, likes the job since he's outside all day and can't stand office work. His car is his office, he's his own boss, other jobs aren't as flexible, the pay isn't great, but it's a good job. Officer Chuck Nathan is his partner. (7:48 PPM Fight Call) A man was hit in the face with a shovel. There is a massive group of people there when they arrive. The victim is on a lawn and is bloody and squirming. A woman and her children are screaming and crying all around. Bill says to move back, give him air, it's hot as hell. The victim's ear is split and he needs to stay down, but keeps trying to move. A crowd stands around, they don't know who he is, but know the guy who did it though. His name is Terry and the victim is George. He’s bleeding from his arm and ear. EMS arrives, says he's unconscious, they need to move him fast and holds his head. It's a...

Minneapolis, MN 6 Oct 21, 1990 (3:13 PM Woman with a Gun Call) Officer Greg Hirsch says it's an interesting job, he works with 800 people where if he has a problem with 1 or 2 of them, that goes out the window when you go to back them up. He'll put his life down for those 800 people even if he's never met them before. He gets a call of a white woman with a gun at 2919 in the rear in a yellow shirt. They get out and run through a parking lot with guns drawn. There is a group of people in the lot and they tell the woman in yellow to get her hands up and she doesn't listen so someone pushes her forward. She says she doesn't have a gun, she did, but dropped it behind the car. They find an automatic handgun back there with no clip. A witness says she's been pointing the gun around for two hours. The cops came once and she said it was just a fight and they left and she started it again. Greg loves this job, where else can you go the wrong way doing 60mph on a one-way street. (7:05 PM Neighbor Dispute) A woman brings her kid over who says his brother's shirt was thrown on the neighbor's roof and he wanted to get it and the guy told him if he went up there he'd shoot him. She doesn't really know the neighbor. The neighbor says he's had a lot of problems with these kids. They take his stuff and damage his property. He found a kid on his roof, didn't know who was up there and they wouldn't come down so he told them if they didn't come down he said he would go get his gun. He admits it was the heat of the moment, a dumb thing to say, but he was tired because he had a really bad day and took it out on the kids. Greg says she can follow a criminal complaint on him and goes back and has the guy apologize so it doesn't have to go any further. It's better they try to get along, but next time ask the guy before you climb on his garage. (911 Call Domestic Violence) Officer Bill Thornberg says with domestics you never know what to expect when you get there. The tradition is a man threatening or hitting a woman and he goes off to jail, but you never know. Andrea Jones calls that her boyfriend went off on her, he's on cocaine, she can't control him and she cries. It is nighttime at house 1530. They walk up and hear gunfire in the distance. The guy inside says he's drunk again. She says he threatened to kill her and 911 heard it. He says it's just a threat thing, he does it all the time, but she denies it. He just came home, accused her of crazy things and threw her down. Police have been there before and she never pressed charges because she loved him. She wants him out, wants him arrested and wants to press charges. All her family is dead except for her sister upstairs and she couldn't get a hold of her. She said she didn't do anything. Officer Chuck Nathan checks him for weapons. She says he's been on coke for months and called her a slut. She was at her sisters, not at bars, found out he was on coke two weeks ago and called the crisis line, but they don't understand. Bill says no, he hasn't been out there before and gives her a card with victims rights and domestic violence info, how to get a restraining order and the number for a battered women's shelter. She says it's her home and if she leaves he'll follow her. They tell her to leave the phone off the hook. She doesn't want them to let him out tonight. Bill says they'll call before they let him out. She says to ask his mom how abusive he is, but only to her. Third Precinct - Officer Steve Setzer says the call is for neighbor trouble, one threatening another. It's pitch black when they walk up to the house and a guy says they are in the back fighting. They walk around and can hear a woman yelling. She said she heard the woman neighbor saying, "I hate those niggers and niggers this." The second woman says they cut her power and has to have all the smoke detectors wired together. She's white and was in her house having a private conversation. The black lady says she could hear it in her kitchen. Officer Cheri Dexter...

Alaska 1 Oct 28, 1990 (State Troopers) Nome - Trooper Ike Lorentz & Sgt. Al Schadle check the weather, 1000 foot overcast, visibility 15 miles. They are going 180 miles away, should take an hour. There was an assault and more a couple days ago. They look at the map and go out to top off the gas tank on their small plane. The state is 560,000 square miles, as big as the US. He'll work a 16 hour day and 10 of it is in the air. His beat is 200,000 square miles, if it's not the last frontier nothing is. (Village of Savoonga) There is a bootlegging operation where they make or can buy the alcohol and transport it to a dry village. This causes problems for at least a week until it dries up. Magistrate Abner Golorgergen meets them at the tiny airport. They ride in a truck to the magistrate’s office. Once there they talk to an Eskimo who seems high and usually isn't like that. There is a makeshift court in the building and they try the Eskimo man. He shot a rifle outside of a public building and was drunk in the second judicial district. The highest penalty is $5,000 and a year in jail. Ike says the man is a danger by the state of his mind and asks that bail be set in the matter. It is set at $1000. Abner wears sunglasses and jeans and as soon as he's done he takes the robe off. They have to take the man's possessions, but he doesn't want them to. He wants to take them home. He says they have to do it and he is in their possession until they get him back to Nome. He wanted help, turned himself in and wanted to get out of the village. They take him out to the airport, get on the plane and fly back. (Hit & Run Investigation) Anchorage PD - Officer Mark Hunstiger says people joke about the town. The nice thing about it is you can get to Alaska from there. There are 250,000 people living there, half the state. An island city stuck in a vast wilderness. They've had five hit & runs in the last 10 minutes by a man in an Arizona van. He spots the red van in a parking lot with a brown car under the back end. The guy ran off and witnesses point him across the street. The guy is behind a building where a woman is keeping her eye on him. He searches him and asks if he had any beers. He says three. Mark asks him if he had them all at the same time and he says yes. He admits he only backed over one car because he didn't see it. He didn't hit anyone else. His DOB is 2/31/59. Mark talks to witnesses and suddenly the drunk has left his car. He asks if this an escape and has to go back in the car. He says he will behave if he removes the cuffs. Mark says they don't make deals with drunks. They go to put him back and he fights. Two women help and they have to hobble him. He says to go ahead and arrest him. They agree. They take him back to the station and his BAC is .232. He says the Fiat parked behind him, it wasn't his fault. He skimmed off a car at a bar. Which one? The bar where they found him. He wasn't at a bar, he was at a credit union. He was? Mark says maybe they serve drinks there. The magistrate can't believe the damage he caused and since the guy only has $50 on him he won't make bail which is good because he's so dangerous. He can't believe no one got killed in his rampage. (State Troopers) Pilot Bob Larson is going to Seward to recover a body from a plane crash that happened three weeks ago. It is at the 3000 foot level in the mountains. The wreckage broke up bad the first time they were there when they found four bodies. The site is often in the clouds and they've been there four times already. Cpl. Jerry Fleetwood is coordinating the search. Hopefully he'll recover the body and the effects, ID it by whatever means, then notify the next of kin and get the remains back to them. A Cessna 207 during an hour flight tour that took people from a cruise ship hit the side of a mountain. They are supposed to meet climbers there. They land the helicopter on a mountain and walk over. Two male climbers are heading down tot he wreckage. Jerry says the best thing about...
